The so called “computer expert” will call the residence or office of the intended victim and then proceed to inform them that their computer system is infected thus why he/she called.
Most innocent people are not computer experts and are gracious for this call, which unknowingly is about to cause much harm. Once the hacker has the ‘ok” from the client to proceed with a computer clean up. The hacker will have the person turn on their computer, and then will then connect to it remotely and obtain all the personal they need such as credit card information, bank account numbers, and other highly important financial and or personally destructive information.
